All Saints' is a lively, inclusive, and welcoming faith community that celebrates the presence of God in all of life's joys and challenges. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey you are welcome here. Our faith is anchored in ancient Christian theology, rooted in Holy Scripture, and illuminated by Anglican tradition. It is made contemporary through our commitment to serving the people of Riverside through worship, education, fellowship, and help for those in need. We welcome you to join us.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
All Saints is truly a place where the barriers that sometimes get put between God and us can slowly be taken down. We are happy to share what we believe and what we do, as Christians and Episcopalians. We invite you to share you spiritual journey with us. Jesus shared bread and wine with his first followers and is with us in the family meal we call communion. Through it we receive forgiveness of sins and a strengthening of our union with God and one another as we remember Christ's life, death and resurrection.
MISSION AND MEANING
While truth can be elusive, it can still be found. Through the actions, teachings and leading of Jesus of Nazareth we can know what God wills for all people: courage, healing, redemption and grace. Making this truth know in the depth of our beings and in the world around us is of upmost importance to those that gather at All Saints'.
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
